You may have any number of reasons for wanting to sell an investment property.
Investors often sell to take advantage of a hot market or offload a property they’re losing money on. Other times, they’ve inherited a property they don’t want to manage — or they’re moving away from one.
Whatever the reason, selling a rental property is not unlike selling a primary residence, albeit with key differences. Below are some steps to consider before you sell your investment.
When you buy a rental property, you expect to make money off of it. You may profit from this home in a variety of ways rather than just through the monthly rent. You could profit as well if the property’s value rises.
When the value of your home rises, so does your net worth. You’ll have more positive cash flow, which you may spend to acquire even more assets.
If you believe you can improve on it with your design, feel free to do so! If the home’s value rises significantly, however, you may also consider reselling it for a greater profit.
Every property has competition out there. When looking for tenants, a landlord needs to showcase the features that make their unit stand out—or make some improvements to add those features.
